Coconut Flour Flat Bread

Sharing is caring!

 A low carb coconut flour flat bread that works with either a sweet or savoury filling.   It is very flexible so can be rolled up and used in recipes such as enchiladas.   Or a quick low carb pizza base too.   I enjoy it as a bread with dips or filled with cheese and coleslaw.

 This is an old recipe of my mine that I thought that I would revisit and update.  It’s rather scary how old it is and how long I have overlooked it too.  So many recipes, not enough time!  I must add a very British “Oi! I know what you did last summer too” to the food blogger who has recently been showcasing this recipe as their own.  Not cool man.   Use my recipes by all means but strap on a pair and credit your source.

It is difficult for me to put this coconut flour flatbread into a category as they can be slightly sweet due to the coconut flour, but are versatile enough to be used as a savoury flat bread.  They do have a delicate coconut taste, so if you want to use them as a sandwich wrap use a filling that would compliment the coconut flavour, perhaps some shredded chicken, lemon mayonnaise and lettuce?   You decide, you’re the one eating it, not me.  I recently had mine with some Roasted Red Pepper dip – very tasty!

The mixture of this coconut flour flatbread is fairly thick so you will need to spread it over the frying pan with a spatula as you pour it in.  Be quick, be nimble and try your best to get a circle!  Or be creative and quickly make a shape.   If it ends up a strange shape, just confidently snap “that’s what I was planning to do”.  I do it all the time in an assertive manner and am never questioned!  Smother it with melted cheese and no-one will question you…

If you are making mayonnaise or ice cream and wondering what to do with the remaining egg whites rather than a boring egg white omelette, then whip a batch of these coconut flour flatbreads. Alternatively, if you are wondering what to do with the left over egg yolks after making this recipe you have a few options.  Lemon curd is always a delicious option.  Or a coconut dessert!

      I’ve not yet tried that. The quantity would have to increase though.

    I am looking forward to trying this recipe but if I am using egg whites from a container how much would I use in place of using the egg whites of 3 eggs?

      I’m not too sure, I would guess about 3 to 4 tablespoons.

    Can you just use 1 whole egg instead of the white?

      You could, but it might be a bit more “eggy” in taste. Enjoy it!

    looks good. i want to make it but why just egg whites? can we add the whole egg?

      I find that the egg white keeps it light and not too “eggy” but feel free to add the whole egg. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for popping by!

      Hi Dawn, it’s a quarter of a quarter teaspoon…or just a “dash” in other words!

    I made these the other day, almost exact recipe, but there wasn’t any liquid in it and they don’t fold at ALL. I did add a couiple tablesp. of water to it, but no go. Maybe milk would help.. I’ll try again. I also found that the flavor is a little odd, so I shouldve added spices..

      I would add more coconut milk perhaps..spice it up with some herbs? Hope the next one works out okay for you.

        Same thing happened to my first attempt, didn’t run like batter, was more like a wet dough. Added more water but by then was too late. I always find that coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture, perhaps that was the reason?
